Sprengler, Rev./Mrs. F. H. (25th Anniv. - 31 Aug. 1957) 

The Rev. and Mrs. F. H. Sprengler, who have been in the service of Christ Lutheran church, Abbotsford, and St. Peter’s Lutheran church, Dorchester, for the past 11 years, observed their 25th wedding anniversary over the past week end. 

They were married at Thorp, Wis., Aug. 31, 1932. In observance of their anniversary, the Sprenglers had a reception Sunday afternoon for some of their relatives, culminating in a 5 o’clock supper, at which the wedding cake, a gift of Miss Elsie Bremer and her mother, Mrs. Pauline Bremer, was cut by the honored couple. 

In the evening, about 150 members of Christ church and St. Peter’s church gathered at St. Peter’s church to honor their pastor and his wife in an anniversary service. The Rev. Krause of Green Grove gave the address, with Donald Sprengler the liturgist and Miss Shirley Sprengler at the organ. 

After the service, a reception was held in the church basement, at which time a cash purse was given to the couple and a lunch served by the members of the congregations. At this time, a second wedding cake, made by Mrs. Henry Gumz, was cut. 

Corsages and boutonnieres, presented by their children, were worn by the Rev. and Mrs. Sprengler, the bridesmaid, Miss Helma Roessler of Chippewa Falls, Wis., and the grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Herman Buss of Stanley. The best man, the Rev. John Melchert, of Cologne, Minn., could not be present for the occasion. 

Others who attended besides the congregations, were Mr. and Mrs. R. F. Sprengler of Norcross, Minn., Mr. and Mrs. Theo Sprengler, Cologne, Minn., Mrs. Amalia Rolf, Norwood, Minn.; Robert Buss, Chippewa Falls; Mr. and Mrs. Hans Knutson and Miss Florence Johnson of Eau Claire, Mr. and Mrs. John Barth, Mr. and Mrs. Hugo Roesler, Mr. William Roesler, Mr. and Mrs. Reuben Rossmann and family, Thorp, Miss Bettey and Orlene Barth of Milwaukee; and Mr. and Mrs. Otto Genrich of Dorchester.
